Thanks for posting your query.
Do you have fever
along with cough also?
Are you taking any cough suppressants also?
You are most likely suffering from Acute flu fever (common cold
) and you are suffering constipation
Constipation may be due to cough suppressant (codeine
) or due to generalized affection of system/ antibiotic induced clearance of gut microflora.
You should consult with physician and should continue anti-histaminics, anti-inflammatory, and antibiotics and decongestants.
You should also take plenty of water along with probiotics.
This is a normal phenomenon and patient may regain normal stool consistency within few days.
